Gift Card Holder For My Nephew

My hubby and I have a neice and nephew that we see at Christmas and we give gift cards to. Now I posted a few back the pillow box that I made for my niece and I had to come up with something for my nephew too. He is still little and believes so I thought that the image of Santa that my friend Lisa Cook gave me from the Magnolia stamps would be perfect.  While I was at it I figured I would enter this little guy into a few challenges.  I will get to listing them later.

 Since this will probably be the last Christmas project I make I made a large Christmas bulb on my cricut and put Santa on it like a tag.  I made two of these so I can enter it seperately into another challenge.I colored Santa with my copics and made his presents in his sack all different colors.  I didn't want to glitz it up too much but I couldn't resist giving some sparkle with some stickles on the presents and in his beard.  The fur on his sleaves and cap is flocked to appear real and fuzzy and his boots, belt buckle and ribbons on the presents got a coat of crytal effects.  I took my good old gel pen and colored the top of the ornament. A bit of ribbon to tie the holder together and at the top of the ornament and he was done.
